Chevrolet Spark in US this August, Indian Beat beats opponents badly

Chevrolet India is though going slow in India but it is expecting a big time with the Chevrolet Spark launch this August in US. Where GM India has decided to continue with production halt till the festive season in India, the American car maker is all set to set afire the small car market in US with the new Spark. Notably, the Chevrolet Spark in the US is the same as the Chevrolet Beat sold in India and India too has a small car named Chevrolet Spark as well in India. Meanwhile, Beat sales, specially the Beat Diesel model sales, have gone up since the petrol price hike recently and it is selling over 4000 units monthly since many months now.

The other factor that has helped Chevrolet Beat gain volumes is the presence of highly fuel efficient Smartech Diesel engine under the hood. This has in fact given it an edge over other similar cars such as Maruti Swift, Skoda Fabia, Ford Figo and others. Also, Chevrolet Beat price in India is also low compared to others and thus after the Tata Indica hatch, it is the cheapest hatchback in the country. However, with the reports doing rounds on the internet regarding Hyundai i10 diesel and Maruti Wagon R diesel is giving sleepless nights to all other segment players in the market in India.

The Chevrolet Spark in US will be the smallest car offering and in fact the cheapest one as well in the US. Peppier engine, stylish looks and a lot of features will be attracting the young generation people who are on the watch out of a feasible city car. The Spark in US will be competing with Smart ForTwo, Scion iQ and Fiat 500. Meanwhile, back in India, the SUV segment is geared up for some real action as the Renault Duster launch is near and all eyes are on it. Where the French car maker is propagating that it will be just as affordable as a sedan, India too has high expectations with it. The SUV will be the first true forerunner in the segment with two other upcoming SUV – Maruti XA Alpha and Ford Ecosport launching this festive season and hopefully early next year.
